Mr. Jan Sundelin (CEO of TIE) said: “The shortfall of Content Syndication, because of the expiration of the CNET Contract, could not be made up by new sales so far. We still expect to come around in the first quarter of FY2014. Our target of € 15mln will come close, however even though we expect to return to profitability in the fourth quarter, we foresee net income to be a loss for the whole year. In line with our previous announcement regarding a detailed assessment of our cost structure, we are about to execute a cost-cutting program.”
